The full expression runs something like this:

tIqwIj qanob. jIHeghtaH.
jIyInmeH tIqlIj vIpoQ.
tIqlIj chonobbe'chugh jIHeghbej,
'ej reH puHvamDaq leng qawI'. 
"I give (to) thee my heart. I am dying.
I need your heart to live.
If thou dost not give (to) me thy heart, I shall surely die, 
and my spirit shall forever walk this land."
